Research Projects

Spintronics

Our spintronics research investigates spin-orbit interaction related effects and is performed in strong collaborations with various partners worldwide. Beside internal collaboration within Hitachi we are working with groups from the Institute of Physics ASCR in Prague (Czech Republic), the Microelectronics Research Centre from the University of Cambridge (UK), the University of Nottingham (UK), the Texas A&M University in College Station (USA) and the Institut d'Electronique Fondamentale in Orsay (France).

Quantum Optics and Biosensors

We have an extensive optics lab where we explore optical technology for both quantum optics, and biosensing applications. Our research currently focuses on spin-photon interfaces based on cavity optomagnonics, and defects in wide band-gap semiconductors such as diamond, SiC, and hexagonal boron nitride. In the biosensors theme, high resolution printers are used to print biomolecules on photonic crystal structures.
